Dorsey Music

Kelly Wheeler and her husband Dorsey run a music retail business in Idaho with several locations. Dorsey Music was established in 1969 and just three years later Kelly walked through the doors looking to buy a guitar. She soon began working in the store before they were married a few years later. One of her first impressions of the broader music industry was attending the NAMM Show with Dorsey in 1975. Among the highlights for her from that Chicago show was being in a small room with just a few people and watching Les Paul perform!
